Appeal on behalf of the Embankment Fellowship Centre by Edana Romney
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Miss Edana Romney , [address removed]
The aim of the Embankment Fellowship Centre is to help ex-Servicemen and men of the Merchant Navy of more than forty-five years of age who are in difficulties, in poor health, or unemployed. A hostel in London provides for those who are temporarily out of work and helps them to find new employment; it also provides a home where men needing out-patient treatment after leaving hospital may stay, if they have no one to look after them, until they are able to return to their work. The Fellowship also has a seaside home, which affords a permanent residence for aged men who are past employment.
